PXXIV. A Psalm of David

1 The earth Jehovah's is,
With all the store of it,
The habitable world is his,
And they thereon that sit,
2 For its foundation
He on the seas hath laid:
And it the water floods upon
Most solidly hath staid.

3 Jehovah's hill on high,
Who shall ascent into?
Within his place of sanctity,
Who shall there stand also?
4 The clean in hands, likewise
The pure in heart, and he
Who hath not lift his soul to lies,
Nor sworn deceitfully.

5 The benediction he
Shall from the Lord receive.
From God of his salvation he
His righteousness shall have.
6 This is the progeny
That seek him, even they
That for thy face enquiring be;
This Jacob is, Selah.

[2]

7 Ye gates, lift up your heads,
And doors that last for aye,
Be ye lift up, that enter in
The King of glory may.
8 This glorious King, Who's he?
Jehovah puissant,
And valiant Jehovah is,
In battle valiant.

9 Ye gates lift up your heads,
And doors that last for aye,
Do ye lift up, that enter in
The King of Glory may.
10 The glorious King, Oh say,
Who is it that may be?
The Lord of armies in array
The glorious King is he. Selah.
